Long story short, I leaned back too far off a roller at white ranch the other day and I went straight backwards landing on my back. Anyways, my bike did the same and somehow my seatpost ('07 Race Face Revolution) got a little bit tweaked and is now a little bit bent. It doesn't allow me to lower it very far because of the kink in the tube.

Is there an easy way to fix my seatpost?

thanks
andy

Sounds like a really weird crash.

Like the time I went OTB climbing an UPHILL rock garden. :madman: :madman:

Get a new seat post.
I had a (similar) recent climbing crash on the SS - I was riding up Indian Creek, went to really stand on it for a steep section, accidentally unclipped while doing so, and promptly lunged forward over the bars and onto the ground in front of my bike - all without breaking 5mph.

Get a new seat post for sure. If you can, get a Thomson, those sh!ts rule. Oh, and I know a gal that won a certificate good for a Thomson seatpost at the last MSC race, and she doesn't need it. I'll bet she'd sell it...

:lol: :lol:

Mine was unweighting the rear to try to get over a large-ish rock in the garden whilst simultaneously packing the front tire into another large-ish rock. :nono:

Face to rock garden. Luckily the damage was minimal.

Geez man seatpost aside how's the back? Some of those rollers are around some small but pointy rock sections.
thanks for the concern but everythings fine. I have a pretty gnarly raspberry on my elbow but the only thing from keepin me from ridin is my damn seatpost! :thumbsup:

While we're on the subject - any recommendations for good strong seatposts (and I don't like spending crazy $ on bike parts)?
I just got a new one and it's already bent.
Maybe I need to change my riding style! and/or lose a few ell-bees?
Sounds like June is the month for Andy's needing new seatposts - maybe we can get a bulk discount.
Glad you're OK!

Almost did the same thing climbing Tramway a couple weeks ago on the SS. Was going slowly through the rock garden up top and somehow the rear caught a rock and stopped me immediately. I ended up folding my stomach over the handlebars doing a track stand until I pushed off the ground to come back up to my saddle - all while clipped in... lucky... just barely missed the stem with the family jewels. I did have to dab though, so that sucked.

Glad to hear that andy is okay. I had a race-face deus ex seatpost that was pretty strong on my Yeti - I replaced it with a Gravity Dropper eventually, but never had a problem with that post.

I won a free seat post from the MSC race (fill out a form and send it in). Have anything to trade?
